How to make a shiplap backsplash?

The installation process of a shiplap backsplash is easy. Before the installation, you need to prepare the backsplash area and the shiplap panels. Remove the electrical switches, measure the backsplash area, and cut the panels according to switches and window trim. When using a wooden backsplash, the most important thing is sealing. Because wood has a porous surface it needs to be sealed, especially if it is used as a backsplash. Otherwise, food and water spills can cause permanent damage to the boards. This will help to prevent stains and permanent marks.

Also, shiplap boards are available on both pre-painted and not painted options. If you have not painted panels, first you need to paint them before the installation. You can use a painter’s spray to create a smooth and well-painted surface. But if you don’t have any experience with it, hiring someone might be a better option. Also, you can use simple tools like a brush or roller to paint it.

Now, you are ready for installation. If you are using a horizontal placement, start at the lower part and lay the first board. Nail the first board into a stud or rafter through the top flange of the board with a nail gun. Begin the second row by placing the overlap of the board over the flange of the previous row, nail it, and repeat this process until covers all area.
